Endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA)
An EBUS is a procedure that allows the doctor to look into your lungs (similar to a bronchoscopy). Still, them to take samples of the glands in the centre of your chest (mediastinum) using the aid of an ultrasound scan, these glands lie outside the standard breathing tubes (bronchi).
Endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration is most commonly done to take samples from the central lymph glands in the centre of your chest (mediastinum), which may be enlarged for a variety of reasons. In 9 out of 10 cases, we would expect this test to give a helpful answer to the problem. Very occasionally, another test may be needed.
You will receive a follow-up appointment after 3 days afterwards when the results will be discussed with you.
